When it comes to bass fishing, you need to know a little, if not a lot, about four different things; water clarity, water temperature, water depth and water oxygen. These four factors are simply bass fishing facts you need to know if you want to be more successful at catching fish. Although mostly out of your control, understanding these four factors will help you decide on tactics and where to fish. Bass fishing success is not all luck, but more a combination of these factors.
Today there are so many different brands and types of fishing line on the market that it is almost impossible to decide which one to choose. Especially because each type of line can vary based on the bass fishing lure you are using. It will never be easy, and for those that are fishing extensively, those that are professional anglers or those that are fishing guides, a fishing line guide is a must have for your bass fishing lures.

Mostly because cold temperatures have typically frozen over the river. There are some years, however, when the weather is unreasonably warm and the river is fishable. When it is, winter bass fishing can be extremely productive.
